Did you hear all those sirens around 9:30 p.m. last night? They were probably attending to a huge fire at 147 Conselyea St. near Graham Avenue. Twitter photos show emergency vehicles parked on Metropolitan Avenue and a large crowd watching.
A 59-year-old woman died in the fire, according to DNAinfo. It took 100 firefighters more than three hours to put out the blaze.
Tipsters told us last night that the fire was near the intersection of Graham and Metropolitan and Tony’s Pizzeria. It turns out that one of the residents of the building works at the pizzeria.
The New York Post says that the 59-year-old may have started the fire with a cigarette.
